Oklahoma entered the first day of fall practice on Thursday with three quarterbacks vying for the starting position. Unfortunately for head coach Bob Stoops, the Sooners exit Thursday with just a two-quarterback competition after sophomore Kendal Thompson fractured his right foot.
“We’re optimistic that Kendal will return early in the season,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops said in a statement. “He has a very positive outlook and is eager to rejoin his teammates on the field as soon as possible.”
With Thompson’s injury, junior Blake Bell and redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will now battle for the starting spot, with Bell likely having the slight edge to win it.
Thompson completed 8-of-15 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Sooners’ spring game.
